As the days start to get shorter, it allows the time that I am
leaving for work in the morning to be more in the golden hour for
lighting. Last week as I was leaving, I noticed this scene just
across the road from our home. I had to stop, get out of the car and
take a few photos.
I have taken several photos this summer across
this same field when the wheat was still green. Now the wheat has
ripened and has all been cut. All that is left is the stubble, but
even this can be beautiful. I do have to admit though that it does
again point to the fact that we are on the wrong side of summer!
The farmer spends many hours out in his fields doing what he can to
ensure that his crops will grow, but without the sun and the rain
sent by our Heavenly Creator, all of his work would be in vain. I
realize more all of time that the same is true in our lives. We can
strive all that we want to be good and produce good fruit, but
without our Heavenly Fathers guidance, we generally fall short.
the farmer will plow this field under and get ready to repeat the
whole process over again starting next spring. I speak for myself
when I say I daily need to keep my life a place that can be worked
with! I hope that you enjoy the photo.

Another beautiful image, Ron. The impact of just two large “fields”
of color shows once again that simplicity can be stunning!
